    Recently got these chicks, hoping that they were Silver Laced Wyandottes...now not so sure.[​IMG]

    Looks like Australorps, although it's kind of impossible to tell for sure at this age. But no, they aren't SLW.

    Edited: After closer scrutiny...definitely not SLW...really doubt Australorp....possibly Ancona, but not enough white/yellow, wrong color of leg.

    I'm not really sure either what they are...just not what they are.

    Edited again....oooh, I think I see black leg, yellow footpad....they might be Black Jersey Giant.

    I was thinking that too, but I looked it up and the chicks looked different.

    I'm not sure what kind of chicks they are, but I agree that they are not Australorps or Silver Laced Wyandottes.

    That's pretty amazing...you've stumped a number of us who are pretty good at identifying chicks.

    Yes, update in photos at around 4 to 6 weeks so we can see what they look like and try to give better identity.
